A hoohaah for Partnerships in Health Information #buildalibrarian

Partnerships in Health Information is a small charity I have supported for a number of years.  They work with African libraries to build capacity, support evidence based practice and improve public access to health information.

Last year I spent the morning exchanging knowledge with two Tanzanian librarians who had been hosted by PHI as Commonwealth Professional Fellows for a three month study tour in the UK.  It was a great reminder of the valuable work PHI do. I was also prompted by a tweet about #buyalibrary from a couple of years back. I hope people will be as keen to #buildalibrarian

I have registered to run in the Hoohaah run on the 21st of June. There is 10k to cover with a bit more by way of gradient than I am used to so it should be reasonably hard work.

I am using JustGiving as PHI have an account with them and as a very small charity this is a very effective way to get money to them.  I am not a great runner by any means – lumbering of foot and red of face.  You can track my early morning efforts on Endomondo if you want to be sure I am not slacking off.

If you can give a little something that would be great. Even better would be if you could give a little something and share what I am trying to do (https://www.justgiving.com/Hoohaah-for-PHI/). Or just share!
